According to a report from the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Cincinnati Bengals, who have the fourth overall pick in this week’s draft had former Missouri Tiger quarterback Blaine Gabbert in for a private workout.
In addition to Gabbert, Cincy has also looked at Auburn’s Cam Newton, Florida State’s Christian Ponder and TCU’s Andy Dalton, but I don’t expect them to take Gabbert with the fourth pick and I really don’t see him being around for the second round when they might be open to taking a quarterback.
“We’ve evaluated quarterbacks but I don’t think we’re forced into any situation any way or another,” Lewis said, in reference to Cincinnati’s first-round pick. “I think we want to be very, very careful to make sure we make the picks that we make and we get the value for the picks where we’re making them. Unfortunately we’re picking too high this year at No. 4, and there comes a great value with that pick and we want to make sure in every pick that we make that we that we get a player that meets that value and we feel real good about him in that particular slot.”
